Hello, steven4554! I went over security bulletins and put together my own update tree for Windows 7 64 bit SP1. I noticed some things when comparing with your list. Consider the following patch replacement chains: 2476490 < 2564958 You have included both. Suggest removing 2476490. 2503658 < 2544893 You have included both. Suggest removing 2503658. 2479628 < 2506223 < 2525694 < 2555917 < 2567053 < 2617657 < 2639417 < 2660465 < 2641653 < 2676562. You have included 2525694 and 2676562. Suggest removing 2525694. 2620712 < 2813170 < 2859537 < 2872339 You have included 2620712 and 2872339. Suggest removing 2620712. 2644615 < 2859537 < 2872339 You have included 2644615 and 2872339. Suggest removing 2644615. 2507938 < 2567680 < 2790113 < 2859537 < 2872339 You have included 2790113 and 2872339. Suggest removing 2790113. 2508272 < 2618451 You seem to not include this patch (ActiveX Kill Bits)? Suggest including 2618451. 2475792 < 2510531 < 2706045 You seem to not include this patch (Vulnerability in JScript and VBScript engines)? Suggest including 2706045. 2489256 < 2716513 2719033 You seem to not include this patch (security update for FTP Service 7.5 and FTP Service 7.0 for Internet Information Services 7.0)? Suggest including 2716513 and 2719033. 954430 2721691 < 2758694 You seem to not include these patches (security update for XML Core Services 4.0)? Suggest including 954430 and 2758694. 2601626 < 2621146 < 2772930 2853587 You seem to not include these patches (security update for Active Directory)? Suggest including 2772930 and 2853587. 2803821 You included this patch (security update for Windows Media Format Runtime 9 and 9.5 (wmvdmod.dll), and for Windows Media Player 11 and 12) under the "WMP12 updates" area, but it is a security patch that also fixes Format Runtime. This can be used by applications other than Windows Media Player. I for one only realized it is an important security patch after encountering it in the bulletin. In the Windows Updates Downloader, the category looked unimportant (some users don't use WMP, but still play WMV videos). Suggest moving 2803821 to security updates area. Some of the missing updates do look like they might not be a part of Windows 7, but instead require additional download and installation? My appologies in that case. Could you point those out? If you don't mind me asking, where do you get information on non-security patches? I can't seem to find a listing or bulletins for those. Thanks
Steven, I noticed KB2639308 is listed twice in the w7 x64 list on the WUD site (that has to be a mistake, as descriptions are different). Also, it is not listed on your latest w7 x64 list here. Why is that? Thanks.
